Whatever will be will be


I don’t often wear bracelets but the example pictured below may just convert me.


I call this bracelet my “happy accident”. I didn’t originally see it, exclaim: “it must be mine” and hastily add to my basket. In truth it was more of a case of: “do I pay £4 for delivery or do I pay X amount more to get free delivery?” It was a no brainer. Ironically, I hated my order when it arrived. It was one of those unlucky times when nothing fits you like you hoped. Hooray for this bangle – the one thing I really didn’t care about. It’s dainty, it’s delicate and it reads: “c’est la vie – whatever will be will be”. It’s a shame that they couldn’t have replaced the last part with “que sera sera” to keep it constant (and surely that’s less letters anyway?!)


This bangle represents how I want to live my life going forward. 

Live for the moment, don’t sweat the small stuff and when la merde happens, shrug it off - this gesture alone is very French - and say: C'est la vie.

If like me you have magpie tendencies and would like one for yourself, head on over to the Urban Outfitters website where you can find them here.
